About the Actor

Aamir was first introduced as a child artiste in the 1970's hit 'Yaadon Ki Baaraat' (1973) -- he was the youngest child in the trio. He quit movies and went on to become the state tennis champion for Maharashtra. Aamir also fell in love with the girl next door in the meantime. He proposed to her the day he turned 21, and she accepted. But apparently, there was opposition since she was from a Hindu family and he, from a devout Islamic one. So, they eloped, got married and returned to their homes. Aamir's wife Reena even appears in the song ""Papa Kehte Hain"" that made him the darling of the nation.

From the tremendous success of Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak (1988), which was released when he was 23, he has blossomed into India's finest actor. His list of sterling performances include Dil (1990), Dil Hai Ke Manta Nahin (1990), Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikander (1992), Hum Hain Rahi Pyar Ke (1993), Andaz Apna Apna (1994), Rangeela (1995), Raja Hindustani (1996), Ishq (1997), Ghulam (1998) and Sarfarosh (1999) and innumerable other films.

Born as Aamir Hussain Khan on 14 March 1965, Aamir gained critical and popular acclaim for his roles as an Indian film Actor, Director and Producer. In 2001, he made his debut as a film producer with the Academy Award-nominated Lagaan, where he played the lead role and earned his second Filmfare Best Actor Award for his performance.

Khan then took a four year break citing personal problems, and returned in 2005 with Ketan Mehta's Mangal Pandey: The Rising. In Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra's award-winning, Rang De Basanti, Khan's role was critically acclaimed, earning him a Filmfare Critics Award for Best Performance and various nominations for Best Actor. The film was the official entry of India for the Oscars and received a nomination for Best Foreign Film at the BAFTA Awards in England. Khan's work in his next movie, Fanaa (2006) was also appreciated, and the film went on to become one of the highest grossing Indian films of 2006. In 2007, he made his directorial debut with Taare Zameen Par, for which he received a Filmfare Best Director Award. This was followed by Ghajini (2008), which became one of the highest-grossing Indian film of all-time, unadjusted for inflation.

His comedy, 3 Idiots, became the highest grossing film of all time in Bollywood.

Product Description

Mela is set in a small town. It is the story of three characters Aamir Khan, Faisal Khan and Twinkle Khanna, caught in difficult circumstances and their mutual relationships.

Roopa, played by Twinkle, escapes from the villain Gujjar Singh, played by Tinnu Verma to take refuge in the truck, as in 'Caravan' of two inseparable friends, played by Aamir Khan and Faisal Khan, who discuss their differing views on women as routine. The duo help her avenge her brother's killing from the villain.

This movie is cheesy Bollywood at its best - you gotta love it! Great songs, great dance sequences, and, although he's charmingly silly throughout the flick, a great-looking Aamir Khan, as always. Saw it on Star Gold, and had to buy on DVD. So much fun!

Format: DVD
I bought this movie because I love Aamir Khan in "Lagaan", "Dil Chahta Hai", and "Fanaa" - he's an amazing actor and I admire his work.

With all due respect to the actors, this movie was simply awful. Some of its particularly horrible aspects:

1. A completely gross exaggeration of the slasher-flick villain who has to die twenty different ways before he actually stays dead;

2. Except for the two heroes, every man who encounters the heroine tries to rape her;

3. The movie can't decide between drama and comedy - the usually superb Aamir Khan doesn't seem to know exactly what his character is supposed to be - clown, romantic lead, or action hero;

4. Shaky camera work, very frenetic movements. Also very choppy in editing;

5. The DVD subtitles are dreadful - they didn't bother to translate the songs!

I was so annoyed and disgusted by this movie, I wound up watching most of it on fast-forward in hopes of seeing some improvement. This movie takes all of the worst, cheesiest aspects of a spaghetti western, throws in a couple of songs & dances, and hopes for the best. Not. Good. I'm glad this wasn't my first look at Indian cinema, or I might not come back for seconds.
